Meghan Markle: Millinery Inspiration from Britain’s Newest Royal

Image credit Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty ImagesHat by Philip Treacy A little bit from Ana, before we introduce our guest writer, Marianna Corinne.  I for one, admire Meghan's very chic style, but I was also very surprised while reading Marianna's blog to find out that one of her hats she has worn to a British wedding, was from Marks and Spencer, retailing for about £29,00!! For those Aussie's, Marks and Spencers is about a mid level retailer, think Target range store and equates to about $60.00 dollars AU. I think she must have got a last minute invite and couldn't get a hold of her "go to" Milliners! How very normal :)! scroll to see the hat below in the blog ....

Come with me to Goodwood Revival! A Vintage car and fashion festival

Goodwood revival is a 3 day Vintage Festival comprising vintage car races and vintage fashion from the 1920's-1960's. It is held annually, every September. The festival is one of the flagship events that Goodwood Estate Hosts during the year and has definitely become one of my favourites. If you love vintage clothes, cars, and anything vintage, this is a real gem of a festival that you must see. I felt that I had stumbled across a little bit of magic at Goodwood Revival; it was as if I was transported back in time and EVERYONE played their part, like I was in a romantic, vintage movie. Looking at the photos just doesn't justify the atmosphere, you need to experience it....
